But she has given "Gordon the Haggis" a rather nasty moment, by going all "Pre menstrual" and threatening to resign over the removal of the 10p tax rate (her constituency is clearly a less than wealthy one!) whilst our Unelected Scotts PM is away in the US kissing the yanks arse's and trying to convince them at least, that he knows what he is doing! We in the UK of course know the sad and sorry truth, he and his cronies are all total failures.
It seems Smith has recieved a massive bollocking by Geoff Hoon the Circus Labour's chief whip
"the last thing Gordon and the party need at present is the resignation no one has ever heard of" whilst he is on a high profile visit to the USA "So retract that silly statement right now and keep your mouth shut or you are finished in politics for ever sweetheart"
The net result is that Angela Smith will look even more stupid because she had been sending round emails criticising the Government and saying that she was going to resign!
We say that a stronger government would have been prepared to say farewell to her - but that's clearly not how Gordon Brown and the Chief Whip have seen it."
The confusion highlights unhappiness in the Labour backbenches at the abolition of the 10p tax rate.Oh tough luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
